“The Glazers Are Great Folks”January 19th, 2012
Joe caught up with Bucs coaching candidate Brad Childress this afternoon. Childress is in town and was coaching his squad in the East-West Shrine Game at practice at St. Petersburg High School.
Childress suggested that the long process the Bucs have taken in their search to replace jettisoned head coach Raheem Morris is exactly what he expected.
Why? Because Team Glazer told him so.
Here are just a couple of questions Childress was asked:
Some have said the Bucs job is not an enviable one given how many holes the team needs to fill and the tough division that the NFC South is. What’s your reaction?
There is only 32 head coaching jobs in the National Football League. I have always said it’s important to work with good people. All indications are the Glazers are great folks, so it’s a good job.
Have you heard from the Bucs in last 48 hours?
I haven’t. Just trying to get [players in the East-West Shrine Game] up for Saturday.
If you weren’t [occupied with coaching the East-West Shrine Game], would you be frustrated with the wait?
[The Glazers] advertised their process. I mean, they were completely candid and accurate in what they said and they said it would be a while.
